Very good and funny!
5 October 2002 | by (Belo Horizonte) – See all my reviews

It´s a very good movie. The director was very faithful with the book "Mémorias Postumas de Brás Cubas", but as the book, the movie is too deep and have a lot of signs that makes the movie be a little non sense to the foreigners and the Brazilians that didnt study at school about the writer.

Reginaldo Faria is perfect playing Brás Cubas, he gives the exactly kind of humor - ironic- that the character demands. The music and the way to pass the time is very dynamic and interesting. The movie can be funny for the most of the people, but for the ones that read the book is just perfect!
